susteren, senator john mccain expressed his deep and in no way opportunistic disappointment. >> even from someone like the president, who has never known what these kinds of tragedies are about and the service and sacrifice that people make, it is still just, you know, i can't even get angry. it's just so inappropriate. and i'm sure that the families of those brave americans are not amused. >> jon: i can tell how not angry you are. [laughter] strong and definitive condemnation from mccain of an interview the senator could not possibly have seen as it didn't air until one hour later. and i'm pretty sure mccain stopped watching this show... [laughter] [whispering] so to see the senator commit to something without first properly vetting it was really, well, yeah, okay. i guess that was... [cheering and applause] i think jokes like that are probably why he stopped watching. anyway, i figure give conservatives a night to sleep on it. see the interview in context. perhaps the reaction will be less knee-jerk. >> "not optimal"? some people aren't happy about that. >> that is an embarrassing word

. and you know else who thought it was too expensive? john mccain, republican senator in a arizona. >> for the upcoming 2002 winter olympics in salt lake city it's estimated to be $1.3 billion. that's outrageous and it's a disgrace. it's a disgraceful practice to put these pork barrel projects on this probations bill. i say to the senator from utah now, if another pork barrel project is not authorized for the olympics games is put on the bill, i will filibuster the bill. >> cenk: oh, damn, the guy receiving that money, mitt romney. he said, well, i got money from other places too. really? turns out that was not true. that was already there by the time mitt romney arrived. $445 million nbc contract. $450 million in contracts and $59 million from the utah legislature all before mitt romney arrived. one more fun critic, a current director of the utah league of cities and towns was on the salt lake city committee. here's what he said at the time. >> turned around what? those are nice clichÉs when you're running for something. but our mountains were here. the reason we were awarded the

but john mccain's appearance was scrapped. in a debate last year, romney was asked about cutting fema's budget and did not rule it out. he ignored reporters' questions about it today. romney political director has a memo suggest hag romney surge put pennsylvania in play and the president is on defense saying the expansion of the electoral map demonstrates that governor romney's momentum jumped containment from the usual target states and spread to deeper blue states that chicago never anticipated defending. paul ryan was in his home state of wisconsin to encourage relief efforts of campaign victory offices. the native son popularity helped him surge in 2.3 points of the president in real clear politics average of recent wisconsin polls. thursday he will visit virginia where the top ally is dealing with the clean-up. >> we are issuing a letter today to all the voting registrar office around the state. asking them to stay open for up to eight additional hours to make up for the time. that a citizen may not have had to vote absentee. over the last two days. >> i don't think the damage ha
, just like john mccain. he made that exact same vote. we voted to make sure we did not go into a double-dip recession and lead the world into a global recession. i did not support sequestration. sequestration is based on the tea party premise that you do not raise revenues whatsoever. i believe we need to take a balanced approach. we are going to need to increase revenues, and we will need to cut agency budgets and stomach some cuts that many democrats are not going to be happy about. that is the only way we get to where we need to be on this. i think it is incumbent upon myself and everyone else in congress to get back to work after this election and come up with a solution that has both of those pieces. cuts and revenues, rather than embraces the tea party sequestration approach. >> do you believe it is possible to make medicare sustainable well into the future without converting it into a voucher system? would you ever support a voucher system? on it, it is there for them without any changes unless they want those kinds of changes. the congressman did not ask any seniors whether they
against hillary and had the war issue against her, beat her on the war issue, took on john mccain when he was really beaten down by then. and here he is facing romney who is a very tough opponent. so this is going to be a close election. they're somewhat equally matched. like one of those swords and sandals movies, though, each guy has a different weapon. they don't have the same tool kit. but one thing obama has in his tool kit, i'll go back to, is hope. you don't run for president with the name of barack hussein obama without hope. i talked to him recently at the al smith dinner, i can't say what he said, but the guy has confidence, i'll tell you that. he has confidence. something tells him he wins. i don't know what it is. it may be delusion narrary, but does have that confidence. he tells us to be hopeful, maybe this is the week he's got to have hope. like a pitcher in the seventh inning two runs back and has to put everybody out for the next three innings but has to hope the batters will come through and give him some bat. he has to hope, just like the pitcher in the seventh inning.
